New iPhones are not the only hardware products that Apple introduced in the second half of the year. According to the estimates of the market agency IHS Markit, the Cupertino manufacturer may also launch a 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019. According to analyst Jeff Lin, the device should appear in an event scheduled for September 19. This “if there are no unexpected development problems”.
New MacBook Pro
According to experts, the new MacBook Pro should arrive with a LCD monitor with resolution of 3072 x 1920 pixels made by LG. The IHS Markit points out that manufacturers such as Dell and HP are betting on OLED displays for premium notebook PCs. But Apple would play safe and continue using a liquid crystal display.
In addition to the screen with a different size, we expect the 16-inch MacBook Pro to bring the new MacOS Catalina operating system. It was unveiled at the Apple developers event. It could as well bring a “new CPU”, which was not specified by analysts.
The expectations of IHS Markit that Apple will launch a new MacBook Pro this year align with forecasts by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He is famous for the projections of Apple launch. According to information provided by the expert in February, the company will launch a notebook with improved design. This would bring support for modifications and parts exchange.
If expectations are met, the news may be great for users of the line. As they were experiencing problems using the keyboard in the standard butterfly present in MacBooks. If the company facilitates the component exchange process, users can fix flaws and maybe even make hardware upgrades more easily.
So far, Apple has not commented officially on the subject. So there is no confirmation for the speculation of the analysts. And one should see it with a foot behind until Apple makes an official announcement.
